In The Historical Romance series, a set of stand-alone novels, Vivian Stuart builds her compelling narratives around the dramatic lives of sea captains, nurses, surgeons, and members of the aristocracy.

Kathy Gregson was still a tomboy after a year at her finishing school in Paris. When she came out to India to join her family in the province where her father was Governor, she found it very difficult to accept the rigid protocol which was a part of life at the hill station.
The social errors she committed, such as forgetting names and faces, were a great worry to her. Why couldn't she be more like her sister Harriet, seven years her senior, who always did and said the right thing? But when Kathy met tall, fair-haired Desmond Conroy at a polo game, she knew that she would have no trouble in remembering his name, or his face... and she also realised that Harriet knew Desmond much better than she admitted...
